DGC@Home: EMA (Begins October 1)

Adoptive parents Ema (Mariana Di Girolamo) and Gastón (Gael García Bernal) are artistic free spirits in an experimental dance troupe whose lives are thrown into chaos when their son Polo is involved in a shocking incident. As her marriage crumbles in the wake of their decision to abandon the child, Ema embarks on an odyssey of liberation and self-discovery as she dances and seduces her way into a daring new life. Centering on the sinuous, electrifying art of reggaeton dance, Ema is an incendiary portrait of an artistic temperament forced to contend with societal pressure and the urge to conform. From world-class director Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda) comes another psychologically acute exhumation of Latin American life featuring an unforgettable heroine who is determined to move freely through the world as she electrifies everyone and everything around her.

Critics:

”A darkly sensual fable of motherhood and the modern family…”

– Los Angeles Times

“You’ll remain under Ema’s spell for a long time after the credits have rolled.”

– Little White Lies

“The obsessions of a relationship powered and chained by love are examined in dizzying detail, in a masterful exploration of complicated emotions.”

– Empire Weekend

“One of the year’s most dynamic and electrifying films.”

– Indiewire

“Incendiary and remarkably bold, in the same manner that a fire is terrifying and fascinating, Larraín’s Ema boasts top-notch acting from a cast that comprehends there are no schematic evildoers or virtuous saviors in his domain.”

– Remezcla
